My sister and I come to Duke Medical Center about every two months or so. We tried the Blue Olive during this visit and have already resolved to come back next visit. While there is clearly a Greek influence mostly evident in the appetizers, the entrees are not typical Greek fare (except moussaka). We started with fried calamai which was breaded just right (although I have to admit that I still prefer the Bluseafood bar and grille calamari with cornmeal breading). There was grilled calamari on the menu as well for those who prefer that. The real winner was the grilled goat cheese saganaki. I could have made a meal on that alone. For entree I had the paella which was excellent although my sister's Scottish salmon was even better. Ended the evening with the goat cheese and honey cheesecake- outstanding and highly recommended. The restaurant does try to use local suppliers when possible (such as their chicken and the goat cheese). All in all, an excellent meal.
